What a gem. Beyond fashion it remains consistently stellar from the beginnings to deserts.
The staff are welcoming and everything is faultless.
Wow! We went because of Anthony Bourdain's death meal proclamation, the bone marrow salad. We were fully wowed by the entire meal: white middle, parsnips, bone marrow, and the cherry trifle. Wow!
Still keeping in very good standard
Great food, drinks and service.
Great proper cooking. Our waiter seemed to be new, but the great head waiter stepped in leaving us with a wonderful experience. Do have the bone marrow, it is outstanding.
Reference for traditional British cuisine, reasonably priced for a starred restaurant, not everything on the menu is at the same level. Austere location (paper tablecloths, etc.) that fits the menu, but more comfortable chairs would help.
Excellent as always. Great food great service fair price
I took my partner for his birthday. I had already been to St John for a wedding but hadn’t been back since. I loved the food at the wedding so knew it would be a winner. We are both pescatarians and there was plenty of options for us. The food was delicious. The service was excellent. And value for money was spot on. Already thinking about when we can go back!
If you love meat, you must go! One of the best meals to be had in London. Thank you Anthony Bourdain ❤️
Just... get... the... bone... marrow. Just get it. Unlike the desiccated chunks of bovine femur you are used to getting when you order bone marrow, St. John serves up luscious, savory servings of this carnivore's delight. Had we known, we would have ordered two. I was sad when the last morsel was savored. Also, the blood cake is sublime. Sadly, they were out of the sweetbreads by the time we arrived late in the evening. Next time, we will book an earlier seating.
Fine British food. Great service by Phil, very knowledgeable and made the whole dining experience amazing!
It was fab, thx to the whole team!!
One of my best Diners ever!
We fell hopelessly and deeply in love with St. John when in London eight years ago. We were SO excited to go back this trip. So our expectations were running high, which I admit probably plays a lot into this review. It just did not live up to our memories. So disappointed.
This is Definitely a worthwhile experience. Yes offal is awesome but be wary of that English obsession with salt, otherwise excellent bone marrow and lamb’s fry.
The wine menu is a lot of fun, go weird it’s worth it.
I couldn’t recommend this restaurant enough. I went with my partner to celebrate his birthday and it was wonderful... it’s unique in that it feels trendy and smart but also really laid-back. (Plus lack of music and the setting meant it didn’t get ‘shouty’ even though the restaurant was full). Great mix of clientele. Food was *delcious* I recommend the fried skate cheeks and double-baked chocolate cake! Service was super friendly, attentive and impeccable. Will definitely come again. What more can I say? You won’t be disappointed!!
Just as good as everyone says it is!
Amazing english gastronomy. Now, we will never say again that the English do not know how to cook. Greetings from France
The service and food was exceptional. Our daughter has severe nut, egg, diary and sesame allergies yet she had a wide range options to select from. We would highly recommend it.
Where head to tail started. Fresh locally sourced product. Great service that made me feel at home.
Amazing food for incredibly reasonable prices!
Amazing from start to finish
As usual st john delivered with great food service and atmosphere !
The food was excellent. I am a repeater but it was the first time for everyone else. They really liked the restaurant. We will definitely come back again.
Birthday dinner it was good but we were expecting excellent
Excellent and unusual food. One of the few places in London where you can get tripe.
We had a reservation for 21:00 on a Friday night and we arrived early and were seated immediately. Service was prompt and professional. I had the bone marrow as an appetizer and my wife had the pork pate'. Both were excellent. The deserts we enjoyed were outstanding. The wine list is extensive and reasonable priced. We would return on our next trip to London. Overall the experience was very good and I would rate it at a 4.5.
Very good food
We enjoyed our meal and the service was good. We were a little disappointed that there was no marrow but that is a good sign that popular items are always fresh. We will be back.
An incredible experience. Everything was delicious, fresh, and well prepared. Worth the hype.
The overall dinning experience was divine. My meaty mutton salad was delicious. Then our dexter pie (for two) hit the spot with flavour, quality and quantity, along with sides. Would gladly return.
Amazing, every time
Love this place. Had liver (twice) and it was excellent.
The fennel and Berkswell was good for the vegetarian.
Was disappointed they ran out of bones..
Had the bone marrow - always delicious - and rabbit, with some madeleines to round off. So much tasty!
The ambience was spartan but cozy. The drink selection was great. The much hyped bine marrow was good but a little disappointing I mist say and had it better elsewhere. The pigeon, venison heart and eel were cooked perfectly and well seasoned. The lamb soup was excellent. The waiters were very attentive and respectful.
Excellent service, attentive but not intrusive. Bright open space, no music, ban on mobile phones, but all this not presented in a pretentious way. Excellent food, the pigeon had an excellent flavour without being excessively gamey. Veg done hi perfection. V pleased
After lunch we asked for a table the day after. That kind of says it all. :-)
All dishes excellent. Superb wine.
We were quite surprised when the daily menu was posted and there weren't any pork dishes on it. We did realize going in that they do varied things with not common food parts, but we still expected, with a picture of a pig on the masthead of the restaurant, to have some pork choices.
We were dining at 7:30 and yet we got the last soup available. They also were out of our 1st dessert choice by the time we ordered.
It was a nice experience and our server was great, we were just a little disappointed at the menu.
